Red Lentil & Chorizo Soup

Share

This Red Lentil & Chorizo Soup is a real winner in my house. We are big chorizo fans in my family. Chorizo is a Spanish sausage made from pork meat and lots of spices including paprika. These spices give it its intense flavor and color. I love to add it to soups and stews for an unbeatable depth of flavor. 

Start this soup by frying chorizo until it is crispy. Fry onion, carrots, garlic and cumin seeds  in the chorizo oil before adding paprika, sugar and vinegar. Add lentils, tomatoes and chicken stock and simmer until the lentils are tender. Blend and serve garnished with yogurt, olive oil, crispy cooked chorizo and a sprinkle of paprika. Enjoy!
